Putting Things Into Perspective. Orphanage Wish List 2012


When I woke up this morning, I dashed into my living room to see what nicely wrapped presents were under the festive fireplace. As I looked around and saw my lined up presents and my smiling parents, I couldn't stop thinking about how lucky I was. I thought to myself, " I have the most compassionate and caring parents that a girl could ask for and we're all in good spirits, what more could I want?". Even if I walked into my living room this morning to see no presents it would have been okay. I know that not only do I have parents that love me more than anything, but I live a happy and healthy life and that matters more than anything. Later this evening, the Deak Kum Pa Orphanage wish list was sent to me and it made even more grateful for my life. Unfortunately, Christmas has turned into such a materialistic time of year where kids become mean if they don't get all of the presents they want. This wish list is a great example of why we need to spend more time being grateful during the holidays. When I was a kid, I was asking santa for toys and sleighs, not for food and soap. I think this list is a great reminder about how important our work is. Let's keep working hard and help grant these Orphans' wishes! Happy Holidays to all you amazing people. You inspire me and I know we can keep helping these kids in 2013. We have done great work and there are many more great things to come!
